Hi everybody. It's been a few weeks since I've checked in. Sorry about that. Busy time. Just started preparing for the Little League season and I'm an assistant coach. Let me tell you, going to one knee to toss balls and getting up again - over, and over, and over - is great motivation to lose some more weight (I'm still on the dreaded plateau.)
Anyway, I did read a feature article in the New York Times Magazine this weekend about the incredible lengths to which food manufacturers go to hook us on their items. It's an amazing read and I've summarized it on my other blog, Brass Salt Shakers. Check it out!
Ironically, I've spent the last week focused on blocking out external factors and taking personal accountability for my weight and my health. The folks who are successful with weight loss do this the best. So while I really believe the food industry needs to be more responsible (the point of my other blog), the truth is for my own health, the burden falls on me, no matter how many "food scientists" are conspiring to hook you and me on their concoction. I'd love your thoughts on how you handle this in the comments.
Hope everyone is doing well!
